Malaysia is a country divided into two by the South China Sea. To the west, Malaysia sits between Thailand and Singapore and is home to pristine white beaches as well as the modern, cosmopolitan capital of Kuala Lumpur. 800km to the East, the second half of Malaysia occupies the Northern part of Borneo and is covered in a dense, tropical rainforest full of exotic animals.
